The moment you step through the heavy wood and glass doors of A’s Music Restaurant and Café you will know you are in for a great experience. Brick walls, classy decoration, full bar with character and magnificent baby grand piano give the feel of an establishment on Broadway in New York City instead of Broadway in De Pere, Wisconsin.

Located in the historic Falk Building in De Pere, A’s offers more than fine dining – this is a unique experience like no other in the area. Whether the focus of your visit is food, drink or entertainment you will be delighted with your options. The friendly and hospitable staff ensures your every need is met and will make you feel like an old friend often remembering your drink and food preferences. Victoria, the owner of A’s, circles around to the tables to say hello and will check in on you a couple times throughout the evening.

The bar choices are extensive and Victoria prides herself on offering her patrons a variety of wine options. Not in the mood for a glass of wine? Settle down with a domestic or imported beer or ask for one of A’s famous homemade Old Fashions. They were recently voted as the establishment that makes the best Old Fashion in De Pere.

The staff is professional and describes the specials so well that you feel as if you were part of the preparation. The ingredients are fresh and the menu is full of options like Seafood Provencal, Chicken Northwood’s, Raspberry Salmon and Stuffed Tenderloin. Each entrée comes with soup, salad and bread served with mouthwatering honey butter. All of the soups are made fresh on the premise by the chef, Tina, who also takes the initiative to offer a creative appetizer menu ranging from pesto scallops to brie in a puff pastry and crab cakes.

There is absolutely no question that the quality of the ingredients, chef’s touch and personality of the establishment will leave you feeling as if you have had the creamiest scallop, tenderest duck or most savory lamb by the end of the evening. While the food is delicious and plentiful, don’t forget to leave room for dessert, which you may choose to eat at your table or take into the bar and have over a coffee drink as you listen to the soft chords of the baby grand piano playing. On the weekends live entertainment is common and is not limited to piano players. Expect to hear amazing local vocal talent, acoustic guitars and even cabaret – the possibilities are endless and in 2006, A’s received the Bay City award for best live entertainment.

Keep in mind that the focus of the establishment is their patrons and everyone from the chef to the owner is dedicated to making your experience enjoyable. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask and if you are unsure of what to choose you can’t go wrong by asking for a recommendation.

Looking for a hip place to monkey around and meet friends for drinks, a Packer game or even dinner? Located on the corner of Reid and Main Street, this establishment is heavy on large flat screen televisions and monkeys. Large enough to allow a nice size crowd and small enough to offer an intimate feeling, Mojo’s is fast becoming a popular hangout.

The beautifully restored antique tin ceiling and full wall wooden bar with background mirrors add some character to the place and if you are looking to be entertained pick up some darts, shoot some pool in the back or check out the Monkey Hall of Fame. That’s right, if you ever wondered about the first monkey in space or the first monkey to be on a television show stop by this wall and check out their photo and story. Marcelle, the famous monkey from Friends even made the wall.

Owners Curt Cornell and Bobbi Jo Roy want this to feel like your neighborhood bar whether you are from the area or not and with great drink specials on a regular basis it is easy to think every night is a weekend. Be sure to listen for the theme song from Tarzan because when it plays $1.00 shots come out. Mojo’s also offers a great venue for Packer games with large flat screen televisions located nearly every location you look in the bar and the full menu will keep any football fan satisfied.

The full menu includes a wide variety of sandwiches and wraps including the famous Cowboy Burger served with BBQ sauce, bacon and a fried onion ring. If you are looking for something to share with the group tackle some of the more traditional appetizers like chicken strips, fries, cheese curds and onion rings or order one of the many delicious pizzas on the menu. In the mood for something a little more on the healthy side, don’t worry because with the variety of salads you are sure to find something to suit your taste buds. As is the tradition in Wisconsin on Friday night, expect to see plates of fish coming from the kitchen as Mojo’s has added a Friday night fish fry to the menu.
